Subject: Puts you right there
Artwork, some realistic, some impressionistic, some drawings, some paintings, all done from life -- these form a tribute to the US Army's medical services during the Second World War. This book preserves the memory of a large group of men and women who worked hard so that others might live. It also pays respect to the men who fell into the meat grinder that is war. This book can be quite moving, and is recommended.
